Join us for June’s First Friday where 45 Degree Gallery will be featuring local painter Stephanie Moon.
Stephanie Moon has always lived a life closely inspired by nature. Born and raised in a small town in Michigan, summers were spent visiting the lakeshore and her grandma’s cottage in the woods. Stephanie fostered her love of natural beauty through the arts, starting with classes at Kendall College of Art and Design, and eventually landing at Western Michigan University to major in Painting.
Eventually, the beauty of Colorado called, and Stephanie moved to Colorado Springs in 2009, where she currently resides. A loyal west side resident, Stephanie loves spending time hiking and exploring the mountains when she is not teaching. “Each hike is an opportunity to find something wild and beautiful that I can bring back to my studio. When I come back and paint, it is a moment to recreate time in nature, but I am the one who decides what will be around the next curve in the trail.”
Meet Stephanie and watch her paint June 4 from 5-8 p.m. Stephanie will be debuting new works as well as demonstrating her painting technique throughout the event.
